40% of US children have tooth decay before they reach kindergarten, and more than 1 in 5 elementary school children have cavities in 7 or more teeth. The most upsetting statistic may be that 60% of these dental health concerns would have been preventable with regular dental checkups and cleanings. Don’t let your child become another dental health statistic, visit Dr. Dallas Steele for outstanding oral health care. Call to schedule a back to school dental exam and cleaning at Arrowhead Foothills Dentistry of Glendale, AZ.
Checkups from the Family Dentist Glendale, AZ Prefers
Regularly scheduled dental examinations and cleanings for children and young adults can help prevent almost all tooth decay and cavities. Dr. Steele and his team will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth. Using digital x-rays to clearly view your child’s dentition, we’ll map any problem areas, make recommendations for at-home care changes, and plan any necessary treatment. Our professional dental cleanings remove plaque and bacteria from hard to reach parts of your child’s smile, and effectively eliminate calculus (tartar) that regular flossing and brushing cannot remove. Send your child back to school with a healthy smile from Arrowhead Foothills Dentistry.
The 85308 Dentist Who Cares – Dr. Dallas Steele
40 million Americans report experiencing dental anxiety or phobia, and more than half of those who have this experience say the fear is a result of a bad dental experience during childhood. At Arrowhead Family Dentistry, we strive to ensure every patient is comfortable and receives exceptional care, and that begins with our youngest patients. Our team helps children of all ages fully understand their dental health and any treatments that may be necessary, we take time to answer questions, and utilize the most effective dental techniques and technologies in providing the highest quality of care.
Patients with developing dentition typically benefit from special dental treatments to fortify their smiles. At your child’s back to school examination and cleaning, we can discuss whether dental sealants or a fluoride treatment could be beneficial. Dental sealants cover hard to reach teeth in a clear, plastic coating to protect teeth from decay. A fluoride treatment attracts minerals to the enamel to repair and strengthen teeth. Regular checkups also allow us to diagnose and recommend early orthodontic treatment for malocclusions. This relatively new field of orthodontics treats bite misalignment at a younger age, before the teeth have fully developed, in order to help children achieve proper alignment before teeth are fully established.
